Dangerous Curves

An interesting thing about scientific studies , they reveal a lot about human behavior while further confirming what we already see every day.  I read this article, Curvy women like a drug to men’s brains, yesterday that stated, “For the study, 14 men with the average age of 25 looked at “before” and “after” pictures of nude women who had plastic surgery to get more shapely behinds.”  Researchers concluded by the male response that, “photos of the women resulted in increased activity in the part of the brain associated with rewards.”

Well, I suppose this study has a lot a lot of merit, but any nude picture of women is bound to to cause some kind of stimuli in a man.  I found it interesting that they attributed the male’s biological response as scientific explanation of “sexual harassment, whistling to women on the street, etc.  They even said that some of this research can be used in understanding more about sexual addiction. (Insert your own famous golfer joke here).

What do you think about the research?  Do you think women should be studied to see what they’re response to the male form is?  After seeing Alvin Ailey male dancers perform, I can attest to being “mesmerized” by the physical male body.  It’s a beautiful thing. Oh yes, it is. But I digress.

What do you think this study says about how men and women perceive each others physical appearance? How does this show up in how we interact on the dating scene?  Should women play up or play down their dangerous curves if they want to attract the right kind of attention?

you momma so skinny she uses a cheerio to hula hoop
You’re momma so short her feet dangle when she sits on the toilet.
you’re momma so ugly they had to tie meat around her neck just so the dog would play would her
you’re momma so ugly that when she was born the doctor slapped her momma instead of your momma behind
you’re momma so stupid she snuck on a bus and paid to get off

Jimmy Jean-Louis is in “the running” with Djimon Hounsou. Mr. Hounsou’s salt & pepper goatee, bald head and midnight complexion is something else. But Jimmy’s giving him a run for the money.
